Rafael Nadal's comeback a 'double surprise'

The Montreal Masters draw is out.

Playing in his first comeback tournament after suffering from knee injury for 2 months, Rafael Nadal could face
Viktor Troicki or compatriot David Ferrer in the second round.

If everything goes well, Nadal could potentially meet Tommy Robredo in the 3rd round, Juan Martin del Potro in the quarterfinals, and Andy Roddick, Fernando Verdasco, or Novak Djokovic in the semifinals.

Now here's something we didn't expect.

While everyone is still in doubt over Nadal's fitness and readiness for this tournament, he surprised us by participating
in the doubles event with 40 year-old Francis Roig who is Nadal's friend and coach!

They are scheduled to play on Monday against Novak Djokovic and Dusan Vemic.
